I don't blame you at all! Is there any way you could take time off starting after Christmas Break, instead of waiting until baby comes?
My DH will be returning to full time teaching in January, which he is terribly nervous about so we don't talk about it. But we're really hoping that he'll have the hours to take parental leave right away when Hiccup is born
In a way I would feel guilty about "using the system" that way - he's been on leave since our 20 week u/s with Elli in January this year, was off completely for the remainder of the year then, returned half-time in September.
But then again it's not like we've been just relaxing or vacationing this whole time - it's been a heck of a year.

Of course, I'm excited to be pregnant now...and after all, if my poor baby lived, I wouldn't have been blessed with this new soul, but its all such a strange jumble of emotion. I haven't talked much about it, not even to DH. It's just...weird. But, my little niece is ADORABLE so even if she always reminds me of my little angel, it'll be okay. It's not like I'll be forgetting my angel baby anyway, right?

Oh absolutely I understand!

My due date is 5/29, we lost Jack on 5/18. I actually think I would like that. My DD's bday is 10/15 which is also pregnancy/infant loss remembrance day.
Elli's due date was hard to get through, although I was still at home dealing with helping my parents sort through all of my Grammie's things after her death - it was distracting, but not really in a good way. I wanted nothing more than to be with DH on that day, but it just didn't work out that way.

I wonder the same thing, and my loss date and due date are just three days apart. Ironically, it would be the ideal day for baby to be born w/ regard to DH's work schedule (he works the 22nd and 23rd but then has two weeks off starting on the 24th). I'm really not sure yet how I'd feel if this baby comes on that day.

One thing I do want to make sure is that we call the child by the first name we give them. My name is Sarah Kate, but my parents never intended to use the Sarah, they just thought it sounded better than Kate Sarah. So I had to correct people all the time to call me Kate. But Dr.'s call me Sarah, even my OB does. Did you go by your first name growing up?
Yup. I actually still go by my first name for everything except job applications and online---like I said, it requires less explanation!

Our Baby Jack's due date was Feb 13, 2011. We lost him on October 22, 2010. This little kicker and roller in my belly is due Feb 8...so close...

I don't think you can know how that may feel, until/unless it happens. It would be so hard, so bittersweet... but it would be a wonderful connection to this little boy's older brother

AFM: We went to see Fred Penner at DH's school yesterday. The kids loved it - and after a few minutes of music and singing, Hiccup started moving like crazy - lots of thumping around, but also a bunch of tumbling and rolling
Now, I'm not sure whether that means he was liking the music or not liking it - but there was certainly an awesome reaction! And, hey, just clued in - that means his ears are developed and working! He moved the whole time the concert was happening (over 2 hours!), then was quiet (likely sleeping, lol) until later in the evening.

Since if been immobilized by sciatica I've been able to feel baby boo a LOT the last couple days. I'm 14 weeks and I'm so excited!! Movement makes everything about this pregnancy seem more real to me. when do/do you find out gender?? Do I really have to wait until 20 weeks?!?

Most will find out (well, if they're in a place that discloses gender) at the anatomy scan, which is done somewhere around 20 weeks (generally in the 18-24 weeks range).
Some have found out with a scan before then, but if you go too early for a peek at gender it may not be a correct guess - because of things being very small still, it's hard to tell earlier on.
